I've been a member here for years, but haven't participated a lot, so I figured I'd reintroduce myself.
I've lost and gain the same 15-20 pounds probably five times since I started trying. I do really well for a few weeks, and then I lose motivation. My best guess is that I have between 35 and 50 pounds to lose, depending on what it all looks like as it comes off.
I haven't been below a size 14 for more than a month or two in decades. Who knows how things will rearrange themselves at 38? I'm just tired of being the fattest one in group pictures, and since a job change and quitting (by necessity) a group sport, I can feel my fitness level getting worse by the day.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.
